       xlswins - server window list displayer for X

       /usr/bin/xlswins [-options ...]  [ windowid ...]

       xlswins  lists the window tree.  By default, the root window is used as
       the starting point, although a specific window may be  specified  using
       the  -id option.  If no specific windows are given on the command line,
       the root window will be used.

       -display displayname
               This option specifies the X server to contact.

       -l      This option indicates that a long listing should  be  generated
               for  each window.  This includes a number indicating the depth,
               the geometry relative to the parent as  well  as  the  location
               relative to the root window.

       -format radix
               This option specifies the radix to use when printing out window
               ids.  Allowable values are:   hex,  octal,  and  decimal.   The
               default is hex.

       -indent number
               This  option  specifies  the  number  of  spaces that should be
               indented for each level in the window tree.  The default is 2.

       xprop(1), xwininfo(1)

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display to use.

       xlswins might not be included in future  releases  of  Oracle  Solaris.
       Users should instead use the -tree option of the xwininfo(1) command to
       print the window tree.

       xwininfo -tree -root replaces xlswins  with  no  window  id  arguments.
       xwininfo  -tree -id windowid limits the tree to windows under the given
       windowid, as xlswins does when given a window id argument.
